From the Editor embark Go Inside # The Story Behind the Stories By Lance Elko COVER PHOTO BY CHRIS ROGERS, HAIR AND MAKE-UP STYLING BY AMANDA ROBINSON Our May issue is a smaller size than usual, but it’s a big one in terms of heart. Several of the stories here are some of my favorites of the year so far. For our cover story, we tracked down Bill Citara, whom I got to know years ago as a first-rate writer on all things edible and potable. I was a fan of his work from the first story he filed with us. Bill’s resume includes stints as the wine and food critic for the San Francisco Examiner and the Miami New Times. His coverage of the newest and best in Keys cuisine begins on page 58. Another writer who has delivered some excellent stories for us is Alex Salkever. Once a journalist for BusinessWeek, he opted for the big change and left the East Coast for Hawaii, where he lived for 15 years. And that’s where I found him when looking for an ace reporter for stories on Hawaiian culture and cuisine. In search of another island story, I contacted Alex, who informed me that he now lived in San Francisco — and he sold me on a story about the annual Dipsea Race in Marin County. Fully trusting his storytelling skills, I assigned him. On first read, I found myself engrossed — to the point where I felt that I was running (ouch!) this most rigorous course with him. His story begins on page 45. On a final note, check out our Must Read department (page 72), where we get a first look at the latest book from Andrew Carroll, a true sleuth with a big heart.
